The Improvement Fund from Healthcare Improvement Scotland, which offers grant awards between £5,000 and £75,000, will close for Applications on 30 November.
The Improvement Fund has £200,000 to award for the rest of the financial year 2016/17.
The Improvement Fund is an opportunity for health and social care organisations to apply for funding to design and test new solutions that will lead to measurable improvements and/or share learning and practice across Scotland.
Luke Cavanagh, head of tailored and responsive improvement support in the ihub, commented:
“This is a particularly exciting development for us and we are really keen to see people come forward with ideas that connect with the national Health and Wellbeing Outcomes. Ideas should be innovative and developed and delivered in partnership.
We are looking for ideas with impact and that lead to useful learning and results that can be shared nationally.”
The Fund is open to applications from Health and Social Care Partnerships, Integration Authorities, NHS Boards, the third sector, the independent care sector and housing organisations.
